    vid from a few years agohttp://www.youtube.com/wa…dqHu7t4cK4&feature=share

    Feel free to rant, rave, post incrimination pix from previous years... after all, it's been going on the the last 38 years... don't miss year 39, coming right up.

    ***************
    ENTRY and ELIGIBILITY - Open to multihull catamarans from 16-22 feet AND monohull boats up to 24 feet considered to be "Sportboats" (such as the Melges) with a US Portsmouth rating.

    FORMAT - Two races on Saturday. Race One is from the waters in front of the Ocean Springs Yacht Club (OSYC), out to Ship Island. After lunch and relaxation on the island, race two goes back to where we started off at the OSYC. A third race will be held on Sunday, typically around Deer Island. Detailed routes will be presented in the forthcoming sailing instructions.

    Two classes, spinnaker and non-spinnaker.

    HOT NOTE! Ocean Springs Yacht Club is doing it up big again this year! Combined with the regatta on Saturday will be a club-wide potluck dinner, open to all sailors. A live band, cash bar poolside, and oh yes, Memorial Day weekend is the official opening of the swimming pool for summer. You don't want to miss this! The Sailing Squadron, the club, and the wonderful ladies (and men) on the social committee are dedicated to making this a weekend to remember! Don't miss it! Last year we had 46 boats, and we're hoping to break 50. We're keeping the price the same as last year... but the venue is kicked WAY UP, so INVITE YOUR FRIENDS!

    NERVOUS? - We'll have chase boats, monitoring VHF channel 68 and lots of folks ready to lend assistance. If you've never sailed to the island, (about 10 miles south) but are an otherwise competent skipper, this is your chance!

    TIRED? - Bring your tent or RV, no worries.

    STILL NERVOUS? - Some race hard, some cruise easy, but everyone enjoys the party at the island. icon_smile

    Check our facebook banner photo for the gang that went last year...!

Saturday lunch is chicken and beverages on the island. Dinner will be a pulled pork luau combined w/ an OSYC club-wide member contributed potluck. Eat w/the club members downstairs, recount the regatta, hop in the pool, and enjoy some music. Additional shirts will be available for purchase.

  • The winds on the coast have been AWESOME the last few days and should hold... water is still a bit cool and when the land warms into the low 80s a great 10-15 knots from the south builds... I took off work early yesterday and screaming reached all the way to Shaggy's on Biloxi Beach... refueled, let folks take pictures by the boat... and came back... one of those perfect days... water smooth... ah...

    Ship Island... here I come.
  • rob, your killing me...i have watched the trees shake here in h-burg for many weeks now...ouch!

    rebelback,

    Welcome to TheBeachcats.com! Remember the old days of the Memphis Fleet 134 group visiting Maumelle and you guys coming over for the Broken Mast Regatta at Arkabutla.

    Was that you that was at the recent "derelict boats" auction at Arkabutla?

    See you at Ocean Springs.

  • Crew Needed
    -----------------

    Crew needed for luxurious Hobie 18 with comfortable bench seats.

    Must be cheerful and enthusiastic, realize that the skipper is always right (especially when wrong), and weigh no more than 130 lbs. Less is better.

    Perfect candidate is 110 lb adult female national multihull class champion.

    Realistic possibility is lightweight youth sailor who pays attention and has passed the OSYC sail training.

    Send me PM's with specific suggestions. I'm planning on arriving Wednesday night and setting up Thursday morning to get some practice sailing in, haven't been out on the water yet this year. grrr

    Nope wasn't me... Ive only been at the club a little over a year now... trying to grow the fleet there though by getting some other young people involved and setting up some traveling for our group.

    But, I sent robpatt a PM already about it, I wont be able to make it to Slip to Ship, and I'm really bumbed because I was hoping to get off the lake sometime soon. My boat just isnt going to be ready, but If you know anyone who is needing a novice-intermediate crew member I would gladly join someone, I've already taken friday off. I see your post looking for one, I weigh about 185 and am not a female or champion so I dont fit your criteria haha.
